New Burmese restaurant in the old Dona Cata spot. Great stuff! And reasonable prices 🙂
Check out their Facebook page for their full (small) menu and limited-time specials.
Here it is! Hope it’s as good as the food we had at Burma Superstar in SF.
Still the old Dona Cata space with a new coat of paint.
Picture of Aung San Suu Kyi on the wall.
Burmese samosas! $4!
Potato and shallots inside. Looks plain but is very tasty, especially with the tangy, savoury tamarind dipping sauce. I like how it’s not a sickly sweet sauce. Wendy didn’t even mind the shallots! And she normally doesn’t like potato in any form.
One of their special dishes, “chin baung kyaw (stir fry sour leaf and bamboo)”, which reminded me of some of the pickled mustard greens that my mom and grandmother might have cooked when I was younger.
Egg prata! Egg was slightly sweet. No curry dipping sauce on the side.
Pretty flaky. I’ll have to try their other prata variations.
Mohinga! Deeply flavourful fish broth without any heavy saltiness. Amazes me how much flavour comes out of this dish without the overbearing use of salt. Love the crispy battered and fried lentils on top.
In case it wasn’t spicy enough for you…
Only $5! Now $6. Probably one of the best noodle soups around!
Another special, Burmese-style cendol. A lot like that Vietnamese dessert with those green wormy things (pandan jelly).
Look! There’s agar agar with coconut and tapioca.
Their other special, beef curry. Chunks of beef, more savoury than sweet, unlike beef rendang. Good accompanied with the roti prata.
I love the cheap tapas-sized portions 🙂 Will definitely come back!
